Robin Van Gyn has been a pro snowboarder for over a decade.  She didn’t get on a snowboard until she was 16 and it was full speed ahead from there.  From riding the Olympic Park in college to graduating to Backcountry riding, Robin is one of those people that bring an attitude that’s always fun.  She’s one of those rare people that raises the stoke level every time.  On the podcast we talk a lot about gender, inclusion, and what it took to make it.  Hana Beaman takes care of the Inappropriate Questions
